Is my boyfriend still in love with his ex?
Visitor's Question from a 21-30 year old Female
I have been dating my boyfriend for six months. He was very honest and told me in the beginning that he is still friends with his ex wife and that they keep in touch through emails. They were together for a total of 4 years. They dated for 3 years and were married for 1 year. They have been divorced now about 2 years. He said they divorced because they were not compatible and they felt more like good friends. I asked him if he was still in love with her. His answer was that he cares for her, likes the person she is, and that she has a new life and he wishes the best for her but he never really said no. I am a little uncomfortable with the situation even though he says the emails are platonic. I know she too is in another relationship. I have told myself that he is a mature adult male that can still be civil and friendly without disrespecting me, but I cant help but feel threatned by their relationship. I totally trust him otherwise. Is it normal for them to still communicate so often? I know they email back and forth at least once a month. Do you think I have anything to worry about or am I just being silly and jealous? I really love him and know he is the one I have been looking for all this time. Please give me some guidance so I can love him without worry.
You are being silly and jealous. They are only emailing and at that only monthly. This is very innocent.
Back off or you could spark their interest which left alone appears to be simply a friendly relationship.
Good luck! George
